Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge Smack Talk

This was evident in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs when Montreal fans all of a sudden started supporting the Bruins in the finals instead of wanting the Canucks to cream Boston as payback for Boston beating them.

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

OK, since my earlier intro has been lost with Sony's site... My name is Mark and I'm a Chemistry Professor (of the organic sort) at a major public University. I'm being a bit more coy about my identity now that I'm in the pool (auditioned in Orlando in May) but many here have my details. I've been a...

Hmmm... The 9 pt question today was trickier than I realized as there are only 11 numbered Appeals Court Circuits but 12 overall with the inclusion of the DC Circuit. Fortunately, I was too ignorant to be confused by that. :D

As I was struggling with the second board, I could be heard muttering to myself "How in the fark are we supposed to know how many states are unicameral?" So much for my TPH moment. The fact that Nebraska has the only unicameral legislature had somehow evaded me lo these many years, but no longer. Th...

Hyperdrive is faster than light travel. So is warp drive. Different fictional universes, so saying whether they are the same or not delves more deeply into fandom than I'm willing to go without an inoculation.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge Smack Talk

I think I'll call out Gnash/Gneq in an attempt to draw him back into the fold (not to mention the fact that last year he and I played leapfrog in the standings for most of the SHC).
